% of the people who were in the insurance market right now. and when i asked jay carney, does the president regret making these comments, he said, no, the president was not misleading the public and that the people who are receiving these letters in the mail right now saying that their plans are being changed or discontinued, that those people are being affected or impacted by the insurance companies, not obama care. here is what jay carney had to say. >> did the president mislead the american people when he made that comment repeatedly? >> no. the president was clear about a basic fact. if had you insurance you liked on an individual market and you wanted to keep that insurance through 2010, 2013, in perpetuity if you wanted to, you could. you were grandfathered in. what no -- health care reform could envision or could responsibly stipulate is that any plan that might come along in the next few years would be grandfathered in because that would undermine the basic premise of providing the minimum benefits for the american people. again, in all of these cases, what is absolutely true is that if yo
is a good thing and it's long overdue. [ applause ] my first guest has been asking questions of jay carney about the obama glitches. getting answers hasn't been easy. >> is she the quarterback for these mistakes. is the hss secretary responsible? is the president responsible? who is responsible? >> the president spoke clearly about he's unsatisfied. >> is he responsible? >> this is on us. that goes from the president on down. >> please welcome fox chief white house correspondent ed henry. it's great to have you. >> glad to be on. i feel like a pup tent in a tornado. i've never heard that. >> it doesn't end well. this website launch hasn't ended well. do you think that it's typical that it's always this c contentious? >> there's a different occupant of the oval office and a lot of people don't seem willing to challenge power. i did it at cnn with bush and i felt like i had a lot more people challenging. she thought i took president bush on just as hard as i take president obama on. it's not about me. i think it's about the press in general. we've got to all do our jobs. it's not about takin
that a switch was discussed as were many options but he says it was never considered seriously. jay carney says the president dismissed the idea out of hand. i know for a fact that president obama never considered this, never thought about it, never entertained it. the vice president has been a partner of his from the 2008 campaign on, an excellent governing partner and excellent campaign partner. so again, campaigns test everything but as the book itself says this was never considered by the president. >> obama's former senior adviser, david plouffe, also denies any serious intent. plouffe tweeted "never any, any consideration of vice president of hillary rodham clinton switch." >>> congress is ramping up its investigation into the terror attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, as you'll recall, four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya tide in that ferocious attack. and republicans critical of the white house response on the night of september 11th have demanded access to witnesses. well now they'll get their chance in just a couple of weeks, cia operatives who were on t
increase to be able to do it. >> reporter: white house press secretary jay carney, who is briefing now, says the affordable care act requirement that insurance plans cover things like maternity care and that they have no cap on lifetime expenses is what makes them more expensive. carney says many people will have better insurance or less cost and in some cases people whose cost goes up will receive government tax subsidies that actually reduce what they finally pay. gretchen? >> wendell, thanks so much for providing a lot of those answers for us. >>> speaking of the obama care website, now you see her, now you don't. the smiling young woman featured on obama care's website, guess what? she's gone now. scrubbed out in an apparent web do-over. in her place, the far less eye catching quartet of really brilliant icons. to sign up for obama care. the identity of the woman remains a big secret. hard to believe since most people in washington can never keep a secret. there's some speculation she was scrubbed from the site to keep her safe after she became the target of heated criticism of the
? >> took it down that might be a story, too. he had said it so many times. jay carney and white house new talking point is look, we always said some of these programs, some of these plan were going to have to go aweigh. no there was never an asterisk next to the president's statement. he said plain and simple, if you like your health insurance coverage, you can keep it. >> do you think he believed that or do you think he was trying to be a little slippery? >> well, according to nbc's story that they unveiled, apparently there is communications within the white house where the president was briefed and was aware that millions of americans would lose the health insurance coverage that they liked. so, anybody with half a brain that studies the law knows that there were provisions in the law that would deem current health insurance programs as not acceptable under the auto fordable care act. do you believe that they have access today, tonight to how many people have enrolled in obama care? now, i know that november 15th is the date that the obama administration sets the rollout, that's what t
money, millions will be enrolling and we're on the hooke dana, jay carney also said the a reason for all of this, the reason for six enrollees is solely because of the web site. here is carney. >> let me just tell you now, ont november 1, we don't expectmber those numbers to be very high'te and we never did.ry but they're going to be even lower because of the challenges we've had with the web site. >> that's interesting. he says they never did know thah becausee earlier in the week, te answer was that the president had no idea that the web site was not going to work. they constantly try have it both ways and that's annoying. i am surprised that the experts seemed so surprised about consumer behavior. if you can't get on to the web site, you're not going to be able to shop around. can as the president said, just shop around. that's not work. plus, when you go on,le if you decide, if you choose, juan, to look at the subsidies, you could get a more generous one throughy the obamacare exchanges. however, consumer behavior isnsm one of -- i don't want the hassle. i'm just going to sign for me
're just talking about 5% of americans. here's how it was explained by jay carney. >> this universe you're talking about here is 5%. that's the whole individual insurance market, 5% of the upon -- of the population. >> that 5% represents 15 million people. the whole obamacare is to get 30 million. and that's the holy grail. secondly, is it just the individual market that is going to lose their policies? >> no. small business plans are being forced under the new regulations to pool their workers with a larger pool of other workers. if they buy in the states regulated by the states, their insurance can go up quite a bit. they can lose their plans. lots of companies are facing this now. >> dr. emanuel, it isn't just small business or the individuals. there are -- forgive me, sir -- there are big companies: time warner, i.b.m., sears, wal-mart, k-mart, wall green are all saying they're going to take their people off their insurance and put them in exchange. those are companies making decisions how they want to insure people -- >> because of the way obamacare works. >> let me finish. before
's credibility on the issue has taken a hit. jay carney says over time they hope to change the narrative because as more people get the benefits and see the positives, the think it's going to turn around. >> ed, administration officials insist 5% of americans will be in the middle of this. but the president promised all of us. 5% is a lot of millions of people, and republicans say they think it's higher. >> that's right. 5% basically, 14-15 million people. so that's negligent. -- significant. and the republicans quoting a story, if you go back to the federal register in june of 20 10. officials posted comments about the new law which had just been signed into law, that suggested it would not just be a hit to individual insurance plans but disruption of employer, based health plans and we may see people being dropped there. so that would change the narrative again negatively for the administration, because it would be a bigger personal of people, it would include people who have insurance through their employer, which the white house says you'll be fine if you're in that category. this report fro
grandfathered in. >> that was white house press secretary jay carney a few moments ago. tomorrow health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius testifies before the house energy and commerce committee. it will be the first time she'll field questions. and joining me now live, senior political editor, mark murray, let's talk about in nbc report and the information we know and confirmation from sten y hoyer that you have individuals that will receive cancellation letters and won't keep their plan. those who bought individual health insurance make up a sliver of the overall market and the law now gives these people more substantial insurance and protections than they have before. that is the fact there but you still have individuals who have gone on the website and see in some cases their premium go up and make it more in return for that but it's not going down well, at least at this point. >> well, it all has to do with tradeoffs under this law and reform. when you look at the toe talty of the affordable care act, the people with preexisting conditions and people who have very expe
house press secretary, jay carney was asked during his daily briefing. here's what he had to say. take a listen. >> the president has been briefed on the incident at los angeles international airport. by alyssa mass extra monaco, chief of staff, and he will be updated. at this point the lead is the lapd, but we're obviously at the federal level in touch with law enforcement officials on the ground, and will -- the president will be updated as the afternoon progresses. >> now, at this point in time, there appears there are no plans for the president to speak about this. president obama currently meeting with iraq's prime minister, norelle maliki, this was supposed to be the president's health care website, but, of course, renewed discussion about the issue of guns and gun violence as this white house continues to monitor the situation at l.a.x. back to you. >> all right, kristen, thank you very much. the shooting at l.a.x. is, of course, affecting air travel everywhere else. that is, perhaps, the least of the issues with one person dead and several injured. but that is something that a
press sect jay carney called the figures cherry picked leaks by republicans and not official numbers. the administration says the website's glitches are making it tough to get actual totals and they are lowering expectations for the initial enrollment report. expected in a few weeks. we told new advance that there would be low enrollment figures initially. >> with the white house in damage control mode, some are wondering if mr. obama is facing a second term curse like ronald reagan who was plagued by the iran-contra affair or bill clinton who was embroiled in the monika lewinsky scandal. >> there is something to be said about the historical antecedents here. it's hard to be president and more difficult to be president in this day and age where controlling your message on any given day is virtually impossible. >> now, dave kemp, charp of the house ways and means committee, has written a letter to cms, one of the agencies in charge of the website asking for as much information as possible about those enrollment figures. the obama administration has called in some of the biggest names
consideration? >> yes. >> david, white house spokesman jay carney asked yesterday if president obama knew about any potential v.p. swaps, listen to this -- >> you're saying he was aware of this or was not -- >> i think if you ask the people who were more directly running the campaign that question, they might have an answer. i'm not aware that he was aware of it. >> in those conversations about kicking biden off the ticket here, is it possible the president may not have been aware of those discussions happening around him? >> i think chris is right in what she said. i covered the campaign. there were moments where the president seemed to have losst some of the momentum he had four years ago. hillary clinton was riding high in the polls as secretary of state. there was public talk among pundits and so on. i'm sure the campaign were thinking about every potential option. whether it reached the level of president obama or was serious, it looks unlikely. david plouffe is adamant about that. i think this is a lot of talk. biden's role in this white house has been periodically questioned about how se
